Slave Form

These papers are now void. Asio is considered a free person.

Basic Information

Full Name: Asio (pronounced ah-she-oh)

Nickname: None until you give him one.

Name on Identification: Same as above.

Age: 20

Gender: Male

Species: Ghost Owl

Sub Species/Breed: Fey/Spirit

Physical Appearance

Body Type: slender

Physical Details:

Gender in ghost owls is indicated by coloration and markings. In human form, Asio is extremely pale, and his ear feathers are heavily variegated, which marks him as highly masculine to those of his species. However, to most, his features and frame are so delicate that he is easily mistaken for female. His voice is most often what gives him away as male. It could be described as velvety.

Asio could be described as a great beauty. When this was suggested to him he did not seem to know what that meant, nor how it makes him valuable. There is something innocent about him in appearance and manner that contributes to his charm.

His coloration suggests that he is fey. His hair is several strange hues -- blues, golds, seaweed greens, and scarlet -- and falls in loose waves just past his shoulders. His eyelashes and eyebrows are stark white. The pink markings on his face, which appear as though drawn by a watercolor brush, occur naturally. The ruby in his forehead and the feathers at his temples, covering his ears, are part of him. He is adorned with a small lunar tattoo on his upper arm.

Physical Markings: When in the form of an owl he bears a gold sigil in the shape the waning moon above the beak.

Physical Drawbacks: None permanent. Flight feathers have been clipped to prevent escape.

Current Infliction: None noted.

Physical Defenses: As with all ghost owls, Asio is capable of producing 500lbs/sq in. pressure with his talons. He may scratch without intending to do so if handed in feral form without proper protective gear. Practiced with bow and arrow in human form.

Appealing Attributes: As noted previously, he has a pretty face when masquerading as human.

Clothing: Arrived wearing his white linen shift, a few adornments, and nothing more.

Other Items: headdress bearing sigil of the moon, blue beaded cascade earrings, knife with the curve of a talon, handmade bow and a hip-quiver.


Feral or Cultured: Difficult to categorize. It could be said that he is cultured with marked feral tenancies; or it could be said that he is feral with idiosyncratic cultured tenancies.

Phobias: None.

Disorders: None.

How do they present themselves: Naive, yet curious and dignified. Sometimes bold, others reserved.

Feelings towards being owned / rented: Extremely loyal to current owner.

Overall Attitude: Asio is what is known in falconry as a passenger bird. Though he is an adult, he is young, and is still molting the last of his juvenile plumage. Out of all falconry birds, wild-caught passenger birds are the most sought after because they considered the easiest to tame. As a general rule, passenger birds have a natural wariness of cultured beings, and easily learn respect. Intelligent, submissive, and sweet by nature, Asio is a passenger of the highest quality.

However, he is untrained and may not understand rules of engagement with free people. He may also demonstrate aggressive behaviors when cornered or frightened.

Quirks: Asio loves to dance.

Hobbies / Interests: Enjoys stories about war, and lectures on medicine.

High or Low Maintenance: High. Though he appears to be a beautiful young man, he is more docile and submissive when cared for as a feral bird of prey.

Diet / Allergies: Stanch carnivore. Prefers to kill his own prey. Weight and diet must be monitored closely.


Language(s) Spoken: Common. May also demonstrate mild telepathic powers in conversation across several languages when presenting in his feral form.

Can they Read / Write: Yes.

Can your character produce magic: Yes. Telepathy. Shape-shifting. Claims to be able to 'smell death' unverified.

Talents / Skills: Expert hunter and tracker. Rudimentary tattoo artistry. Telepathic skills may be trained. Possible uses as a magical familiar.

Training: Absolutely none. He is currently being trained to return to his Master's side after flight. This training may seem bizarre to rental clients as it involves convincing the owl, which is a highly monogamous creature, that their Master is also their mate. It may appear as though this slave is being spoiled. In reality, an invisible cage is being built around him.


Current Owner: Greth.

Previous Owners: None.

Previous Usage(s): None.

Previous status: Wild captured.

For Rent or to Own: Rent only.

Cost: 10 gold to rent

OOC Info/Notes

Availability: Weekends, and weekdays after work

What are you looking for in a slave / slaver Roleplay: Not exactly for that overboard dominatrix shit. Think of Asio as more of a... consort. He'll be loyal if your character treats him with respect.

What are your allowances for your character: We have to talk first if you're going to kill him and you have to have some sort of funeral.

Long Term/Short Term: Both, but I'm more interested in long-term
